While pregnancy can be a beautiful experience, it also demands a lot from our bodies—our skin rapidly expands, we go through bouts of itchiness, and that general feeling of “tightness” becomes an everyday symptom. But instead of suffering, we can turn to a good belly oil to help calm and soothe our skin. Belly oils are made with these issues in mind, unlike most body oils which don’t account for the specific conditions unique to pregnancy.

Of course, our skin absorbs the majority of what we put on it and the last thing we want to do is risk harm to either ourselves or our little ones. So we’ve rounded up six of the best all-natural and organic belly oils formulated by pregnancy-focused brands (many of which double as safe body and face oils, too!). Now these body oils can act as a bit of indulgence—and a ritual for real relief along the way.

1. Hatch

Best For | Quick-drying oil
Natural & Organic | Sweet almond, grapefruit, & jojoba seed oils, calendula, rosemary extract, rosehip oil
Price | $64 for 6.7 oz.

Hatch’s natural skincare products are plant-derived, vegan, and free of parabens, dyes, and synthetic fragrances. The Belly Oil in particular has a whopping seven plant- and seed-based oils, including sweet almond oil for Vitamin E, antioxidant rich grapefruit oil, and hydrating jojoba seed oil. Whether you use it on your own belly or your baby’s, we love how it effortlessly soaks into the skin without any greasy residue. Between the lightweight natural formula and the comforting scent, we can see why this is an expecting parent’s favorite.


Best For | Belly & body oil
Natural & Organic | Undaria seaweed, sunflower, grapefruit, & sesame oils, rice bran extract, sunflower extract
Price | $84 for 9.6 oz.; discounted subscriptions available (10% off)

OSEA’s Undaria Algae Body Oil is an all-time favorite on The Good Trade team—and it can be used throughout pregnancy as well. Clinically proven to improve elasticity and retain moisture, this best-selling oil is perfect for your belly as your skin expands (as well as the rest of your body!). It smells heavenly yet subtle, is rich without being too heavy, and can be used on dry or damp skin. While we’re pro-stretch marks, if that’s a concern to you, some reviews praise the oil’s ability to reduce scars and stretch marks across the body. (And did we mention purchases at OSEA are climate-neutral and cruelty-free? A win-win for everyone.)

3. Mother Mother

Best For | Face & belly oil
Natural & Organic | Cranberry seed, pomegranate, marula, borage, & baobab oils, calendula extract
Price | $28 for 1 oz.

If you’re tired of getting one pregnancy-safe oil for your face and another for your body, you’re in luck: Mother Mother’s Face + Belly Oil is the two-in-one you’ve been looking for. Safe enough to use across your skin, this “everything” oil is made for expecting and new parents in mind—and at a price that won’t break the bank. Derived from 11 deeply nourishing oils—think sunflower seed and neroli oils—this blend will nourish and hydrate your skin (or your little one’s) without any greasiness or stains. Just a couple of drops from boobs to belly will go a long way here.

4. Ingrid + Isabel

Best For | EWG-verified blend
Natural & Organic | Apricot kernel oil, organic marshmallow root, organic calendula, organic rosehip, lavender, & chamomile, rose absolute
Price | $35 for 4 oz.

Ingrid + Isabel has long been made with moms and babies in mind—even the name is a testament to the mother-daughter relationship (Isabel is Ingrid’s daughter!). Verified by the Environmental Working Group for safety, the brand’s belly oil is about as safe and sustainable as you can get. Instead of worrying about if your products contain chemicals that could harm your growing baby, you can indulge with this formula chock full of responsibly sourced and organic ingredients. In fact, there are only seven ingredients overall (listed above), so you won’t find any fillers or fake preservatives here. Address every concern from itchiness to tightness in this magical belly oil.

5. Zoe Organics

Best For | Organic belly butter
Natural & Organic | Organic shea butter, organic coconut, rosehip, & avocado oils, rosemary & calendula extract, essential oils
Price | $20 for 2 oz.; discounted subscriptions available (10% off)

If you’re not a fan of belly oil, you may love Zoe Organics’ Belly Butter instead (though the brand does offer a Belly Oil as well). Formulated of 100 percent organic ingredients, this concentrated and waterless blend can be used from pregnancy through postpartum as a hydrating treatment. If you’re open to scents, this one smells divine thanks to the ylang ylang and sandalwood essential oils—sensual and soothing but not overbearing. If you do decide to pair the Belly Oil and Butter together, the team recommends the Belly Oil first and the Butter after. A calming and conscious ritual for every stage of pregnancy.

6. Natalist

Best For | Hydrating itchy skin
Natural & Organic | Organic argan oil, organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, organic olive oil
Price | $35 for 4 fl. oz.

For a hydrating and dewy oil that’s formulated to soothe your growing belly each step of the way, Natalist’s formula shines (literally). Made with simple and wholesome ingredients in the USA, this oil will leave your skin feeling smooth and supple while helping improve skin elasticity. Besides keeping your skin nourished, Natalist is at the forefront of producing quality products that are sustainable, ethically made and free of toxins and other harmful ingredients. This oil is vegan and made in a cruelty-free facility with absolutely no parabens, phthalates, dyes, or petroleum. We almost forgot to mention they are 100% plastic neutral. We’re sold!
